Ingredients

Scale

For the sweet potatoes

  • 3 cups (1 29-ounce can) sweet potatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • salt to taste

For the topping

  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup pecan pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the sweet potatoes and add the melted butter, milk, sugar, vanilla, beaten eggs, and a pinch of salt. Stir until incorporated. Pour into a shallow baking dish or a cast iron skillet.
  2. Combine the butter, brown sugar, flour, and pecan pieces in a small bowl, using your fingers to create moist crumbs. Sprinkle generously over the casserole. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until the edges pull away from the sides of the pan and the top is golden brown. Let stand for the mixture to cool and solidify a little bit before serving.
